LINKY: 3nd Annual Piggy Bank Savings = Money for Quilting Challenge


Click the picture to read more!

Even in this modern day of credit/debit cards, I'm still a cash spending gal. But this a habit I've obviously had for a long time. Here's a picture of  my very first piggy bank:
 Serious! I use to love how it was the color of a penny and shaped like a shoe. I use to really love that I needed a "key" to open the bottom. Now THAT in itself  made saving money fun! This little shoe secured my babysitting money and allowance away from my sister. LOL!! Click here to read what I bought with my first "piggy bank" savings...I'm still smiling as I sit here thinking about my teenage self in that previous post!

THIS YEAR:

Welll...in our household this year, hubby was the winner!
He had $110.57 saved in change and $7.00 saved in bills. Grand Total: $117.57

I on the other hand, only saved $33.80 in change and $19.00 in bills. Grand Total: $52.80
Enough to treat treating myself to one of these:
A red Zirkel Magnetic Pin Organizer!
(Hmmmm...and I'll probably use the other $35.00 for fabric!)
Zirkel Magnetic Organizer / Pincushion Red
NOW it's your turn to share!
Last year 23 of you linked your penny pinching goals and even more joined through email after the linky closed. Well, today is the day to empty those that piggy banks my friends and create a post to link here with us exclaiming your total amount saved and share what quilty purchase you're going to make!
Also, the code to our challenge button challenge is on my sidebar.

  3. Well, now that's interesting. Your savings this year are almost exactly the same as your savings from that first piggy bank challenge! I must say, in this age of plastic and online finances, it's really hard to save actual coins! Congrats! It's gotta be so much fun spending that "found" money.
